Dainik BhaskarDec 14, 2019, 06:40 PM IST Sports Desk. The Indian Premier League 2020 i.e. the IPL countdown has started. Players auction is to be held in Kolkata on 19 December. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), captained by Virat Kohli, did not do much in the last few seasons. Critics say the biggest reason for this was the constant change in the team and the release of players. RCB released 12 players before the auction. All these places are to be filled. In the auction, Virat's team will have a budget (purse) of Rs 27.9 crore in total. Here we are referring to the five players, on which this Bangalore team will definitely focus during the auction.
1: This all-rounder from Sam Karenlingland can meet the needs of RCB. Apart from being a left arm pacer, he bats aggressively in the middle order. There are great fielders. In the last home series against India, Karen had a wonderful performance. Last season, he was bought by Kings XI Punjab for Rs 7.2 crore. He scored 95 runs in 9 matches at a strike rate of 172.73 and took 10 wickets. The special thing is that in the last season also RCB wanted to buy them but the bet was handed over to Punjab.
2: RCB is very keen on this Australian wicketkeeper batsman. In the World Cup, he scored 375 runs at an average of 62.50 and a strike rate of 104.16. Big Bash recorded 264 runs at an effective average of 37.71. Virat's IPL team is looking for a good wicketkeeper batsman. And here, Carrie fits.
3: Pat Cumminsdale has released RCB to Stan, Nathan Coulter Nile and Tim Southee. Now he has a challenge to sharpen his fast bowling. The best option for this is Australian star pacer Pat Cummins. They can also play in the entire season. The last time he played from Delhi Daredevils. Then had 15 wickets in 12 matches.
4: Virat Singh can seriously consider taking Virat Kohli's team to this Virat of Jharkhand. He made his Ranji Trophy debut in 2014. In the Vijay Hazare Trophy, the young lefthander scored 335 runs at an average of 83.75 and a strike rate of 100.60. He also spoke in the Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He scored 343 runs at a strike rate of 142.32. Virat's choice may be Virat in the middle order.
5: Chris MorrisRCB does not have any lower order batsmen who can score fast runs if needed. In this sense, Chris Morris of South Africa is a great option. Morris is an amazing fast bowler and fielder, his performance with the bat has also been excellent. In the Majesty League, he recently scored at a strike rate of 176.81. 10 wickets are also recorded in his account. They are IPL regulars.
